The demands for Japanese Voice-over services are higher than ever following the increasing trend of using media products in marketing and business in recent years of foreign companies to reach more Japanese audiences.

Dubbing Services

Japanese people have an interest in video-based content. In 2019, it is estimated that Japanese adults would spend an averagely of 4 hours, 9 minutes a day watching TV and 3 hours, 8 minutes on watching digital media. The figures prove that by using audiovisual products, your businesses can attract great attention and engagement from Japanese people. As Japanese people value their mother tongue and traditions, it is highly recommended that you invest in localizing your videos into Japanese.

Compared to other media localization methods, voice-over is a favourable choice for many companies. Its most notable advantage is the ability to offer viewers a great viewing experience at a reasonable price.

Working with professional native Japanese voice artists who understand the Japanese language, dialects, and cultures is the best solution for great quality voice-over videos. GTE Media, with a team of native Japanese voice talents, brings value-for-money Japanese voice-over services to help you grow closer to Japanese audiences.


GTE Media brings clients two best-in-class Japanese voice-over services. We guarantee all of your voice-over projects are in the good hands of experienced native Japanese voice talents.

Japanese UN-Style Voice-Over

For UN-Style Voice-Over, the Japanese voices usually come in a few seconds after the original voices. The original voices are also faded down (usually to about 20%) to make sure the Japanese voices can be heard clearly.

This service is suitable for short information videos such as testimonials, speeches, or interviews.


Japanese Off-screen Voice-Over

In off-screen voice-over videos, the speaker is off-camera and only the voice is timed to the movements on the screen. The voice in such videos plays an important role in putting the story together, guaranteeing an absorbing and smooth plot for Japanese audiences.

We recommend you use this service for commercials, documentaries, and other marketing videos.


Japanese is a rich language with numerous dialects. As a professional media localization agency, GTE Media can support a wide range of Japanese dialects. Please refer to the list below the list of Japanese dialects we support:

Japanese Dialects Locations
Hokkaido Dialect Hokkaido
Aomori Dialect Aomori, Akita, Iwate, Yamagata, Miyagi, Fukushima
Niigata Dialect Nigata, Toyama, Gifu, Aichi, Yamanashi, Ishikawa, Nagano, etc.
Main Island Dialect Tokyo, Saitama, Ibaraki, Chiba, Tochigi, Gunma, Kanagawa
Kansai Dialect Kyoto, Shiga, Hyogo, Nara, Osaka, Wakayama
Okayama Dialect Yamaguchi, Hiroshima, Okayama, Tottori

Although these dialects can be mutually intelligible, they still have some significant differences in vocabulary, inflexions, pitch accents, and particles. They are also spoken in different regions of Japan. Therefore, when doing a voice-over for your videos for a specific market, you have to make sure the dialect you choose is relatable to the target audiences.

Regardless of what dialects you are looking for, our team of native Japanese speakers who speak different dialects are here to support you.

If you are unsure which dialects you should choose for your media products, contact us for a free consultancy.
